1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........

I Made It!

I didn't expect to take to long to show you my finished top.  You know what happens to the best laid plans... they come unstuck when you catch the Devils own stinking cold.   Never mind..... I'm finally able to show you my Natures Journey.....


I have to say that signing up to stitch along with Chooky, Susan and all you girls was the best thing I've done in years.   What a difference it makes having a reason to keep up with the blocks of the month... fear of the lash is a great motivator!     I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there will be another SAL starting soon.    

OK... now I have to quilt it.   I'm thinking of hand quilting.  Never done it before but I really think this lovely project deserves yet more effort on my part.

Must dash.... I'm on retreat at the moment and computer time is restricted.  Thought you might like to see the sunset here on the Mull of Galloway last night.....


Have a lovely week... stitching Natures Journey
Hugs
Josie
